The set-up: Last week, I mentioned in my weekly swing trade video for members that I was watching the solar sector. The entire sector is trendy at the moment, and I want to trade with the tide and not against it, particularly in the dog days of summer when the market tends to be dull and lacking in direction.
Specifically, I was interested in First Solar Corp. (FSLR) because it recently beat earnings. I was looking for the chart to become less extended, form a wedge, and trade a break out of consolidation.
The chart: The stock put up the result I was expecting; this chart; look here and you’ll see that it has broken out of a wedge of consolidation on a green note.
The play: On Friday, I liked this set up so much that I was willing to buy into the September 15, $50 call options for a weekend hold.
My trade plan is simple: I’m looking for FSLR to retest its previous high of $50.21. From my entry of $1.80 per contract – I bought six contracts — my options would return well over 10 percent if First Solar does re-test the high.
If FSLR trades below its recent base of $47, I’m out.
While I have established my position, I think the FSLR Sept. 15 options are still worth buying in here, up to $2.00/contract.
